welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning. abe, abe, abe. abe bagoda has died. 94 years old. amazing actor in movies like that one, "the godfather." and on television, "barney miller." that face and that sense of humor. >> what about that big heart? so many times he came to studio 1a, one of our most favorite guests. beloved. you don't kiss just anyone on the head, matt. we'll look back with a lot of affecti affection. top story this morning, one member of the anti-government protesters this morning shot dead, eight others arrested as the fbi and local police look to end the standoff. joe fryer has the story. good morning. >> reporter: 25 days into this occupation authorities decided it was time to make some arrests, but things turned violent. the confrontation played out not at the wildlife refuge but on a highway 50 miles away as some members of the anti-government
7:03 am
group were driving to a community meeting. along a rural highway the fbi and oregon state police stopped the occupiers vehicles to arrest members of the group when authorities say shots were fired though they would not elaborate on who fired. one protester was killed, identified by family as lavoy finicum. he became a spokesman for the occupation. >> honestly, there are things more important than your life and freedom is one of them. >> reporter: nbc news spoke by phone with finicum's daughter. >> i want to know why because i know my dad. he would never put someone's life in jeopardy. he would only defend his life. >> reporter: another militant was injured, treated at the hospital, then turned over to the fbi. in all, eight anti-government occupiers are now behind bars, including the group's leader, nevada rancher amon bundy. shan na cox was arrested.

7:05 am
out of tomorrow night's republican presidential debate which comes just days before the iowa caucuses. we have complete coverage beginning with nbc national correspondent peter alexander, peter, good morning. >> reporter: hi, matt. we're live in iowa this morning. barely 100 hours out from caucus day in this state. this is farm country which is fitting because donald trump is now locked in a high stakes game of chicken with both fox news and ted cruz. taking a page out of his playbook, donald trump is walking away from the table abruptly announcing he'll skip tomorrow night's debate. >> let's see how much money fox is going to make on the debate without me, okay? all right. let's see. >> reporter: a trump aide telling nbc news it's not under consideration and his word is bond. rival ted cruz immediately challenged trump to a one on one 90 minute debate duel and hit the candidate for backing out. >> donald's is a fragile soul. if someone did that, didn't show
7:06 am
up at the interview, you know what you'd say? you're fired! >> reporter: trump's latest fox news feud escalated quickly after they slammed moderator megyn kelly for not being fair. they went head to head over her questions on his views on women. kelly responded on air last night. >> mr. trump has repeatedly brought up that exchange of a evidence of alleged bias. we agreed to disagree. >> reporter: the network fired back overnight with a statement charging trump's campaign manager with threatening kelly saying we can't give in towards terror ryizations against any of our employees. trump highlighting his anti-immigration stance and looking at blunt criticism that he's a new york liberal taughting the endorsement of jerry fall well jr. with tony perkins backing cruz. still anti-abortion leaders are
7:07 am
urging iowans to support anyone but donald trump arguing he cannot be trusted on the topic of abortion. echoing attack ads by cruz and his allies over trump's past comments on "meet the press." >> i am pro choice. >> in 1999 you said you were pro choice in all respects. >> what did i say? you didn't read it. read the full statement of what i said. >> are you a trustworthy -- >> excuse me. very trust worthy. more so than zblu i'll read it now. i'm very pro choice -- >> you didn't read -- why didn't you say when you asked the question before that i hate the concept of abortion sngs do you apologize? >> i -- i -- -- >> do you apologize. >> do i apologize for reading your words? >> for not reading my words. >> i am very -- >> no, do you apologize for not reading my words? >> reporter: of course, we never apologized. as for skipping thursday night's debate, you decide whether it's a bluff or a mistake. donald trump isn't letting up again this morning calling megyn kelly a light weight reporter.
7:08 am
he says he plans to hold an event simultaneously this thursday to help raise money for veterans and wounded warriors. >> peter alexander, thank you, peter. mark halperin who hosts with all due respect. good morning to you. >> good morning, stavannah. >> you don't antagonize fox news. is donald trump smart or is he going to live to regret this one? >> i think he's on track to dominate the news. look, we've moved from the silly season here to tension city. there are just days to go before the voting. fox news put out a very provocative confrontational statement. they showed donald trump one finger, donald trump showed them one finger and then he punched them in the face and has thrown the debate into chaos and the closing days here in iowa into chaos. he is showing strength though, which is his brand. he also has some endorsements
7:09 am
and other tricks up his sleeve in the closing days to do what he's done the entire campaign, dominate. >> mark, let's talk about this. you talked about the punch and counter punch. this is what seems to have set donald trump off. a fox news spokeswoman r50e678d out and gave this statement. we learned from a secret back channel that the ayatollah and putin both intend to treat donald trump unfairly when they meade with him if he becomes president. trump has his own secret plan to replace the cabinet with his twitter followers to see if he will even go to the meetings. >> what was the strategy there? was that smart of fox to poke the bear? >> no, it wasn't. i think journal lis stickically and tactically it was not a good move. a news organization sponsoring a debate should treat all of the par tis sants with respect. they should let their journalism speak for itself. fox for some reason decided to continue to go after donald trump. they have a right to have megyn kelly be their moderator. that's their journal lis stick choice. but by putting out that
7:10 am
statement they gave him not just an excuse, they gave him a genuine rationale to say i'm not going to show up at a debate if they're taunting me. >> sechbsing an opportunity, ted cruz wasted no time. he said, look, i'll challenge you donald to a one-on-one debate with no moderator seemingly taking on the obstacles. how can trump duck that? >> well, it's going to be an interesting question to see whether cruz keeps that up and whether that debate becomes an issue. look, ted cruz must win iowa more than donald trump. it's not absolutely essential that he finishes first, but the stakes are high. trump leads in the other 49 states effectively. trump i don't think will do a one-on-one debate with cruz. make no mistake, right now trump has a lot of momentum going on here in iowa. cruz has to find a way to stop him. >> mark halperin in des moines,
7:11 am
thank you. as for the democrat, bernie sanders, heads to the white house for a sitdown with president obama. the president has remained neutral. this week he heaped praise on hillary clinton saying she was, quote, more experienced than any non-vice president has ever been who aspires to this office. and a reminder, we will be live in iowa next monday. i've got complete coverage of the caucuses. now to a dangerous situation out in california. we showed you this video on tuesday. coastal erosion leaving several apartment buildings teetering on the edge of a cliff. incredibly some residents are now fighting to stay in their homes. nbc's gabe gutierrez is there. gabe, good morning. >> reporter: matt, good morning. city officials say they will be out here twice a day to inspect the land. there are 20 apartments here. a few of the residents are refusing to buzz. it's the cliffhanger refusing to budge. part of the bluff crumbling but this morning some residents
7:12 am
insist it's safe. >> where else can you live along the coast for like $1500 a month? this is like a poor man's malibu. >> reporter: art willoughby isn't ready to say good-bye to the view so he's filed an appeal. >> there's an old saying if you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space. >> reporter: michelle has lived in pacifica for five years. >> i love it here. i'm not willing to leave. >> reporter: she's ignoring these yellow signs. >> to say, oh, we have to get out. why? if it falls, it's not going to fall in ten seconds. plenty of time to get out the front door. >> reporter: the severe erosion based on a ferocious el nino. city council members approved an emergency declaration allowing them to ask for state and federal money. residents are allowed in the units to pack during the day but police say there's no firm deadline for them to finish moving out. >> do you feel safe here?
7:13 am
>> absolutely -- at this point right now, yes, i do. >> reporter: jeff bowman says he's complying with the evacuation order, packing up his closet and trying to figure out what's next for him and his dog. >> things happen for a reason, but i just think they're making more out of that than they need to be. >> reporter: of course this area has dealt with coastal erosion for years, back in 2010 two other apartment buildings were evacuated and unoccupied sense then. more rain is expected later this week. matt, back to you. >> gabe gutierrez, thank you very much. new developments on that toxic water crisis in flint, michigan. the mayor says it could cost oos much as $1.5 billion to fix the less contaminated water system there. nbc news has learned from city water officials that there are currently no led pipes being replaced. plumbers say they haven't donnie work since the october announcement that the water wasn't safe.

8:02 am
that means "start today" is almost over. jill is here with one more steals and deals hoping to break you out of your style rut with a great makeover edition. you'll love this. a lot to get to in this half hour. let's start by heading back inside. natalie with the top stories. officials sorting out details of a deadly confrontation between police and armed protesters who occupied a federal wildlife refugee in oregon. eight suspects under arrest and another is dead. morgan radford is in oregon with the latest. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. 56-year-old robert finicum was shot and killed when the bundy brothers along with five others were arrested here. it happened at 4:25 p.m. when the militants were headed to a meeting in a nearby county. senior law enforcement officials tell nbc news they chose this particular route because they knew the protesters would be driving along it to go to the meeting. they say there were nine people in two separate cars and
8:03 am
everything was peaceful at first until the first car sped off, hit a snow bank and that's when police say robert finicum came out brandishing a firearm and police shot and killed him. this hasn't stopped the protesters at the wildlife refugee center, natalie. more people have shown up there this morning. police have it blocked off. the protesters have put a large bulldozer in the road to keep police from getting to them. their hope is that it will take police aening lo time to remove the bulldozer giving them time to reassess their situation. eight people are in jail this morning. natalie. >> morgan rad ford, thank you. an important new health recommendation for women. the u.s. preventive services task force says all primary care doctors should screen pregnant women and new mothers for signs of depression. nbc medical contributor joins us now. natalie, we talked about postpartum depression, but this group saying that this is preventive care and it needs to happen during pregnancy and after. this is a big move.
8:04 am
>> it is a big move, natalie. according to the american psychological association, one in seven women experiences postpartum depression. about 50% of those, it's their first episode of depression ever. the same percentage also start to experience these symptoms during pregnancy. it's not just the postpartum period. screening is so important. >> this is a time when women experience many hormonal changes. how do you differentiate between the baby blues versus postpartum depression. >> we generally say the baby blues should last up to two weeks or so. again, it's not a definite at day 15 you should feel okay. if you're not, you have it. the symptoms would be the same that you can experience during regular depression. that is, sadness, crying, depressed mood, loss of interest in doing things that would normally make you happy. there are, of course, unique symptoms to postpartum such as fear of being left alone with the baby, for example, feeling guilty. the screening doesn't take very long. it's a very good screening test for postpartum.
8:05 am
it's ten questions. it takes a few minutes to answer. if you screen positive you should be referred out for further care. >> thanks so much. a frightening scene caught on camera tuesday after a natural gas powered garbage truck began smoldering on a new jersey street. a neighbor was recording just as the truck explodes. fortunately nobody was injured. but two houses had to be evacuated and inspected for damage before the residents could return. a little boy's reaction was priceless when the montreal canadiens dale weise flicked the puck to him during warmups. an adult handed it to him. the way his face lights up. simply adorable. he is hugging that puck. he probably put that one under his pillow last night and slept with it. >> cutie! >> love that. >> natalie, thank you. coming up, the matadors sparking outrage for holding his baby while fighting a bull.

8:10 am
why shame? why would you feel shame? >> it sounds crazy but when you hold a secret, the feelings come along with that when you hold a secret as long as i did. with something like ms, you lose control over things that you once had. and it's slowly taken away from you. and that could, you know, chip away at your self worth. you can feel less than and a lot of negative feelings. you know, you have to ask for help sometimes which is something i'm not good at doing. but you have to be able to reach out. and when you have a good support system like i have, i think it helps a lot. it just took me this long to be able to do this. >> your diagnosis came 15 years ago. your symptoms at the time were what? >> at the time was minimal, tingling in my legs. and then i went semp tom free for quite some time. and then during a stressful time in my life, going through a

8:13 am
and love and respect. and you know, sometimes we have to work a little harder for it but maybe it will be a good example for him. >> you released a couple of tweets saying this is a hard but liberating day for me and i hope that together we can help others and fight on. and you said, i'm overwhelmed with all of you today. thank you from the bottom of my heart. i don't feel so alone. >> i was so overwhelmed. i didn't anticipate the level of responsibility that i now feel of representing a whole group of people that sifr in sile suffer. ms is different in everyone. it's a hard thing to diagnose wa, a hard pill to swallow. it's a frustrating disease. there are people that are better off than me and people that are worse than me. but i hope that can i change people's ideas of what this disease is. >> the industry person you told this to years ago who said don't
8:14 am
ever tell anyone else. do you feel differently now? do you want to work more? >> yes. >> and do you think you'll be received with open arms. >> i'm excited about the future. i'm excited to go to work without feeling that i have something to hide. i feel like i'll be a better actress for it now that i can show up and be me. i've been working with this disease, it was hard, but i'm really locking forward to the future and i understand that some people may not want to hire me and some people may. and i'm open to it. but i have every intention of continuing my career. >> if there are people that don't want to hire you, their loss. >> thank you. >> jamie-lynn it's great to see you. >> thank you. let's look at what's going on right now. a big storm system coming on shore in the pacific northwest over the next six days and another one behind that. raufl amounts, we're talking some places in northern california and southern oregon

the casting has gotten big on social media. >> really? it's supposed to be this is a serious casting choice? >> tamara thank you very much. we're launching a new series we'll calling "today's digital divide. we spent a lot of time jumping between computers and smartphones, constantly connected to updates in your work and personal lives. >> and occasionally drunk texting as well. we decided to take a look at the effect it's having on us beginning with our brains. from the moment we wake up we are connected. the dawn of the digital age has brought efficiency and convenience but digesting all of that information can be overwhelming. to see what it's doing to our brains we asked some of the
8:23 am
finest around. dr. earl miller is a professor of science. we asked him ou the human mind is developing. >> the brain has a difficulty processing multiple bits of data at once. we're very single minded. >> to demonstrate our limited capacity, we put a few volunteers through a couple of tests. >> something is different between these two scenes. as soon as you notice, you tell me what it is. >> with the pictures missing every two seconds, kate misses the disappearing tree and she didn't do much better with the moving railing. >> your brain has a limited capacity for simultaneous spots. your brain moves your eye around three or four seconds. and you're taking in a bit of information from the visual scene and your brain pieces it together into an illusion that your mind can do more than it actually can. >> next we were shown how we can

8:25 am
images of both. >> when you're recognizing faces you're using a space processing region. when you the distraction from the house, the signal for the face processing can be reduced. there's not a l as much knurl signal there when you have the distracting information around. >> how did that translate with juggling your smartphone while doing other tasks? >> everything we know tell us that you simply cannot be as good at processing the task at hand when you have to also filter out the distraction. people are kidding themselves. >> for all of us self proclaimed masters of multitasking, it looks like the joke is on us. >> i have trouble single tasking. >> right? it's true. dr. miller says the modern devices are greet tools. we just need to focus on a single task when you use them. limit your distractions to get more done. but by definition, you're doing

9:07 am
what network says, i'll give you the platform? >> hey, donald. >> think someone will take him? here's the thing, he doesn't need a network. people will take it live, i think. >> you think cable news -- so fox is on the debate, and then the alternative would be msnbc and cnn. >> they don't have to sanction it. they can take it live as an event in their broadcast. >> it'll be interesting. >> i'm not convinced he doesn't show up and they don't work it out. >> i don't think so. he's already said, that's it. his campaign manager said. on "morning joe" when you talked to him, he said it's a done deal. >> welcome to show business, baby. >> maybe they're in it together. >> no. >> i don't think it's conspiracy, but i think they know it benefits both. >> it helped megyn kelly. >> she was a star and it
